Grounded in the modern Middle East but bridging virtual reality, history, and mythology, this well-paced novel brings together a thought-provoking array of characters, each with a powerful moral compass that points in a slightly different direction. The suspenseful plot combines the diverse patterns of Haroun And The Sea Of Stories,Reamde , Un Lun Dun, and Jitterbug Perfume in a satisfying, original balance.
